Hi all

Last months update

TMP link

Well July seems to have flown by again and my painting has taken a backseat to work. Also my will power was weak and I could not resist discounts at Warlord etc.

6mm – 396 (Egyptians for my colonials)
28mm – 10 (WWII stuff)

28mm – 12 (Arab light cavalry)

Monthly profit = -394 (oops)
Yearly profit = 93

So the plan is to get back on track

1) Paint the Egyptians
2) Only buy the next batch of 6mm colonials

Not much painting done but I didn't buy anything either.

Bought 0
Painted 9 (Brigade Games US War of 1812 Dragoons 28mm )

Monthly profit +9
Yearly profit +41

Lot's of semi painted figures on the workbench just need a little focus to get them done.

(Didn't we just do this ten days ago? :D )

Seems like most of us had slow months. My July was same my move and the unboxing and settling in took up a lot of time. I'm also finishing up the commission for the next Chaos Wars Kickstarter, so that doesn't count towards my totals.

3 Ral Partha orcs leaders

3 Ral Partha AD&D troll and figures

55 in the black
203 figures in lead pile.

My plan for August:
- Get back into painting rhythm
- Finish commission
- Get back to painting the troops!
- Only 1 more figure purchase – 1 lonely AD&D troll.

Not a great month but still positive.
Bought none

Painted 10 ACW cavalry

YTD +162 more painted than bought

While I did not get many done I have another 30 figures that are between 25% to 60% completed. So I hope August will be a strong month.

Too much vacation time out of town, and then some folks were selling cool stuff in the marketplace on TMP.

Start: +757
Painted: 20 15mm Finnish gun crew for FOW
Purchased: 105 in 28mm equivalents
End: +657

Bit of a slide, but I got way ahead at the start of the year finishing off four different armies and selling off some odds and ends. Already gaining ground in August again.
